    I don't understand why Apple can't just announce a release date. When Windows 7 launched the media was notified of an exact release date weeks in advance.

    This is one area where Apple is doing it wrong.

    Since they can't torture us by making us wait in line for hours the've created this virtual torture. I'm sure they see the hundred of articles about all the rumored release times why don't they just give us a freaking date already.

    I don't understand why this needs a thread. It's a ****ing OS, exciting, sure but not even remotely "torture" because we don't know the release date.

    We can tell the OP that the release date is July 31 and if it comes before then they can get excited.

    lol, it's not such a big deal. It would be great if Apple just announced it, by now they should know the date. But Apple is like this, they like surprises apparently. I don't mind, it's annoying but in an exciting way, like Christmas :D

    If it's that big a deal to you just purchase the developer package for $99.

    Did you just get a Mac or something? This has been Apple's MO for quite a few years.

    Apple have done this for ages.

    You could get some perspective and realise it's really not that important, and calling it torture is quite ridiculous.

    Apple doesn't announce the release date because it's too interesting for Jobs to read threads like this, and the "Lion will be released___________" threads! :rolleyes:

    Just download and install the GM and stop worrying. Apple have shot themselves in the foot here (in my opinion) so another illegal installation isn't going to make any difference.

    Virtual "torture" is a bit of an overstatement. Its not that big of a deal. Exciting, yes. I cant wait for it to come out myself.

    But patience is golden. And theres a reason why "Microsoft does it one way and apple does it another."

    Wanna know why? Because Microsoft isn't Apple. They're two different companies and they do things different ways. Besides, if we knew about Lion way back in May, it'd take the fun out of waiting.

    Strange, the guy next door doesn't even know about this. And he's got a Mac too.

    I suspect he's got better things to do, though.

    We should be able to vote down entire threads before we even see them.

    I'll shed you a virtual tear if it makes it any faster for you.
